Look Whoooo Turned TWO! {Ellie's Owl Birthday Party!}

The Birthday girl in her special birthday shirt!

{found here}
The inside:: we requested books for Ellie's "library"!

The "bird food"...

"Dirt and worms"aka Oreo pudding and gummi-worms! yum!

More treats! Thank you Pinterest!  
paper circles and my sewing machine = easy decor!
Made with paper lanterns! Now a fun addition to Ellie's room!

Gotta get a picture with our girly EVERY year on her birthday! This a tradition for sure!

Click here for last years picture to see how she's grown!

Printed extra owls and hand-wrote the letters to make a banner!
Do you spot our little "owl" perched up there?

Time to dig in! She went straight for the eyes! Mmmm!
After that bite, she was done! :) (works for us!)

I promise there were guests at her party too! Including (for my own memory) 2 sets of Grandparents, 1.5 sets of Great-Grandparents, 3 Aunties, 2 Uncles, 1 soon-to-be Uncle in Law, 1 cousin, 1 2nd cousin, 2 Great Aunts, 2 Great Uncles, and 4 family friends! 
Our house was FULL! 

Our girl is much loved! 

What a great day celebrating our sweet "Twoooo" year old!
